It Could Be Dutton's Year Yet Again

Just as he has every year since the four-star began at Rolex Kentucky in 1998, James C. Wofford, who won Kentucky in 1981 and 1986, evaluates the starters.

The last weekend of April is always the first thing I put on my schedule for the year. Rolex Kentucky is the largest equestrian event on the continent and is “can’t-miss” watching for fans of the sport.

All Horses Pass Final Inspection

Gina Miles suffered some nervous moments in the final horse inspection on Tuesday afternoon, Aug. 12, as McKinlaigh, lying in fifth place for the United States, was held for re-inspection. He passed upon re-inspection, as did Ringwould Jaguar, the only other horse to be held, for Sonja Johnson of Australia. The rest of the horses looked amazingly fresh, acting more like it was the first inspection instead of the final.

Cammy O’Rourke Is The New Face In Town At Rolex Kentucky

When Cammy O’Rourke bought Kirby Park Irish Jamie in 1999, she was 14, and the gray gelding was 5. Four-star three-days were a distant dream. Fast-forward nine years, and now the long-time partners have three four-star finishes on their resume, including 11th at this year’s Rolex Kentucky.

O’Rourke rides for Australia, but she’ll be a familiar face at U.S. horse trials this year as she’s moved to Ocala, Fla. She graduated from veterinary school last year and has a job at a small and exotic animal clinic in Ocala waiting for her after Rolex Kentucky.
